Why add seaweed seasoning to your soup?
Seaweeds offer the original source of umami flavour without the need for adding chemicall enhanced seasoning. You will note on the frond of a dried wild harvested seaweed, that a fine white fluffy powder rises to the surface of the frond as it dries. This is glutamine, an amino acid which is naturally occuring in seaweed and is the source of umami flavour. The Japanese scientist who invented MSG was trying to replicate this powder in his lab when he created this chemical version. Read more in this blog article to understand the role seaweeds play in Umami flavour.
Seaweeds are naturally rich in a range of minerals and trace elements, many of which are unandant in the ocean but depleted in our soils. When you add seaweed, you add a salty flavour but with less sodium and higher mineral content so this is a fabulous alternative for those on a low sodium diet.
In summary, we are fans of adding nutrients naturally, through whole food sources, rather than taking supplements or using chemically enhanced seasonings. When you embrace seaweed as a seasoning alternative, you get a boost of nutrients (many of which are not present in land plants, and certainly not in the conentrated amounts that seaweeds offer) PLUS a wonderful umami flavour.
